In 2014 I published my first book Where IS That Light Now?
Currently available from http://eeodo.co.uk/, art book shops, and distributed by Antenne Books at http://antennebooks.com/books/paul-okane-where-light-now
Where Is That Light Now? collects three short, illustrated pieces from the archive of artist, writer and lecturer Paul O’Kane. Photography as art is explored here through a personal mode of literary memoir. The pieces are distinct, drawn from different stages of a career but cultivate a subtle intra-textuality. A search for a consistent perspective on a life as an artist occasionally encounters Asian thought. The writing comes to question established contexts for art and proposes an alternative – art as a personal vocation or ‘way’.
eeodo (http://eeodo.co.uk/) is a fledgling publisher making artist’s books. While supporting invention and speculation we are committed to developing a broad audience and promoting the idea that art, whilst innovative and esoteric is also an everyday human exchange.
